Floral Rooster

Or, as I call it...the Funky Chicken. All I could think about when I was coloring this was that ridiculous Funky Chicken dance from the 70's. Do you ever get something like that in your head...and you can't get it out? Honestly, I scare myself sometimes! LOL!

I stamped the Floral Rooster on watercolor paper using Onyx Black Versafine ink, then embossed with JudiKins Detail Clear embossing powder. the image was colored using Tombow (water based) markers and a damp paint brush. I stamped just the red rose portion on a scrap of watercolor paper, colored, cut it out and popped it up with foam tape.

If you like to color, you're gonna LOVE this stamp! It was a lot of fun to color!

The green and orange decorative panel was cut using my new Martha Stewart Cornice Edge Punch . All the designer paper is from the Basic Grey Lime Rickey paper pad. The cardstock is Intense Orange Prismatics , Intense Kiwi Prismatics and Black Prismatics .

The buttons from my stash were threaded with Natural Burlap String which I colored with a Copic marker. The Ivory Burlap String would actually work better, but it wasn't sitting on my work table at the time. You know how it is. I would have had to get up and find it? :-)
